lyrics

We cut such imposing figures
in motion pictures
We will meet you there

We've got the better part of an army
digging tunnels deep inside your hearts
We fill that emptiness, at your expense
with the private lives of superstars

We've got the better part of an army
designing nothing, with the greatest care
manufacturing needs, so we can bleed
you drier than the desert air
We will take you there

We've got the better part of an army
building a pedestal for idle dreams
You'll never satisfy all your appetites
You've been sowing what you cannot reap

We've got the better part of an army
We'll pretend to take you anywhere
We'll let you tag along, 'till your money's all gone
until you realize you're beyond repair

We cut such heroic figures
in motion pictures
We were never here
